After I bought my first Raspberry pi 2 I did my first test with raspbian.
Inside Raspbian there are some games installed but there isn’t a virtual keyboard!!!! WTF?!
I’ve lost many many times to configure all so I decide to share all the test I made.
First of all upgrade your system:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Then install the virtual keyboard
sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard
Now the virtual keyboard is installed but you have to execute it from terminal… WTF?!?!
No Icon will be create inside the menus
Now we have to create a shortcut icon on desktop
sudo nano ~/Desktop/keyboard.sh
And paste this:
Ctrl-X to exit
Y to save
Enter to specify the filename
Now we have to specify that the file is executable
sudo chmod +x ~/Desktop/keyboard.sh
Now restart the system and finally you have an icon on the desktop to run virtual keyboard and use raspbian with touch monitor or only mouse
Next step trying to develop on raspberry with Windows 10 IOT
